Hello and welcome to the 12 Days of Christmas blog hop! On this ninth day of Christmas, we are sharing Christmas DIY wreaths. So I kinda have a thing for magnolia wreaths. Probably because we live nowhere near real magnolia trees and you always want what you can’t have. 😉 I have already made a DIY Magnolia Wreath that I hand painted to make it look like the ones from Magnolia Market. There was some magnolia garland left over from that project so I thought it would be fun to make a Christmas version. I was not going to paint it this time however. This DIY Christmas Magnolia Wreath is super easy and took me about 10 minutes to put together! That is always a bonus.
You can find the tutorial below and at the bottom of the post, check out all the other great door decorations from the many talented bloggers we have joining us for this blog hop.

Welcome to the third annual 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop!
Stop by every day from December first through the twelfth for new ideas you can use to make your season brighter!
Meet Your Hosts
They have all been busy as Elves creating, decorating, cooking and crafting tons of new ideas for you to try this holiday season!
I feel like many people do not attempt DIY projects because they think they do not have the talent or that it would be too difficult. This is a project that literally anyone could make! It was so simple.
*There are links to products in this post that I use or are similar to products I use. If you buy something from one of these links, I may make a small commission (with no additional cost to you) from the purchase. I will not recommend anything that I would not buy myself. Thank you for supporting my blog!
For this project you will need:
Like I said before, I had some magnolia garland leftover that I had gotten at Hobby Lobby (make sure to buy it when it is %50 off). I had about 1.5 strands left and used it all for this wreath. There were still some spots on the finished wreath that I felt were a little sparse so I feel like 2 strands would be the perfect amount.
Using wire cutters, start cutting off pieces from the magnolia garland.
Cut different lengths of garland but always make sure to leave a long end on one side.
You will use this end to stick into the grapevine. As long as the “tail” is long enough, the pieces will be secure enough to stay in the wreath. There is no need to hot glue them in.
Keep adding your pieces of garland as you work your way around the wreath. Fill in any spaces that look like they need more.
When you are done, check it over to see if there is any adjusting that needs to be done. Mine needed adjusting still, the top left was looking a little low on leaves so I moved some leaves around to fill it in.
I thought it would be fun to add Santa to the middle of the wreath to make it a Christmas wreath. I got this Santa last year at Target. Isn’t he cute? I just took some floral wire and lightly secured him to the back of the wreath. He is easily taken off so I will be able to use this wreath all year long! 🙂
What do you think? Easy enough, right? Now get to work! 😉
See you tomorrow for the tenth day of Christmas. Whew!! Anyone tired yet? Me! 😉
